I was wondering if there is a linux implementation of a TS Gateway, like the one present in Windows Server 2008.

My scenario, I have a Windows remote desktop client behind a Linux Gateway at home, which I would like to access while at work. I understand that I could simply forward the necessary port, but that would simply introduce more complications if others in my house wanted a similar functionality.

From my experience with TS Gateway and RD on Linux, this would be hard to implement. If you find something, please be sure to update, as I would be interested. Also, please be careful on how you phrase your question. As I understand it, some of the senior people here are sticklers for the "Anything in a home setting" restriction. It may be beneficial to check out the faq. –  Edwin Jan 10 '13 at 9:38
The joys of closed protocols - I don't of anything for Linux which supports this, nor would I expect that there's anything available. But with a small number of servers, why not just use different (external) ports for different machines - as Microsoft explain here: windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/… –  symcbean Jan 10 '13 at 10:48
You could always go with VNC –  John Homer Jan 10 '13 at 20:37
